From January 24, 2024, to February 29, 2024, the San Diego Flood Response Fund helped rapidly deploy flexible resources into the community and support organizations responding to unprecedented flooding in San Diego County.

On February 28, 2024, Federal assistance became available to San Diegans affected by the floods, leading SDF to sunset the San Diego Flood Response Fund. Generous donors gave $1,400,031 to the fund. SDF was the fund’s largest donor with $300,000.

We extend our gratitude to each and every San Diegan and organization who made a difference with their donation, and especially to our nonprofit partners on the ground who invested every grant in temporary housing, debris clean-up and home repair, replacement of household items, food, transportation, mental health support and medical services to improve the lives of those impacted.

Advisory Council

SDF identified and convened an advisory council comprised of nonprofit, corporate and community leaders that recommended grants for local nonprofits.
